The farmer, who has lived in Queensland’s south-east for more than 60 years, was left devastated after the floods.
He is among dozens of farmers who lost their homes and property after torrential rain swept across the state.
“We’re just heartbroken,” he said.
The farm owner said he lost three houses, one of which was his own home, after he was inundated by floodwaters in March.
He was devastated and has been trying to rebuild from scratch, Mr Lomax said.
“We’ve had a couple of attempts to rebuild.
We have to make some repairs in our house and it’s just been awful,” he told 7.30.”
It’s very frustrating, it’s very hard to talk to people and not be affected by it.””
It makes you feel like a stranger, like you’re not part of this community anymore.”
Mr Lomacys family has lived on the land for more that 60 years and has always relied on his family farm.
“I’m just a farmer, I’ve always done this.
It’s something I’m passionate about,” he added.
Mr Lompax said he was working with the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources to make sure the state’s agricultural industry was prepared for the potential of future storms.
“The biggest issue we’re having is we’re getting flooded more than ever,” he explained.
A $30,000 fund to assist farmers affected by the flooding will also be created.
